Still having fun with the camera. Decided to give a tour of the D200 thats still on the trailer. I think i have all my parts for the transaxle. Hopefully I will be able to make some progress this weekend.

That's a beautiful machine! I was skeptical when you first posted the ad, but you got a great deal! The oil even looks new. I can't wait to see it up and running! Congrats on the deal of the century!

Thanks for the video. I have never seen one of those tractors so getting a good tour of one was very interesting. They are a strong looking machine and you certainly have a very nice example there. Good luck with getting it back in operation. If you can, we'd like to see a video when you get it back in operation.

That looks to be in excellent condition. I hope things go together smoothly this weekend.

Thanks for the great video. Nice looking Massey next to it if I saw correctly.

I hope things go together smoothly this weekend.


NOT HAPPENING YET!

First off I am having to pull a hub off one of the axles. No press and she is stuck on there. Using a gear puller and hammer I am getting it to move about 1/8 inch at a time. I am averaging 1 inch an hour, 2 inches so far. And the grade 9 bolts i ordered are 3/8, i need 5/16. Guess i wasnt paying attention well enough when i ordered them.

Britt, maybe your wife can narrate whilst you work that hub off the axle! :orangecool: I had to work a hub off an MF14 once that came off just as you describe....slow & difficult! My axle was still in the diff, so no putting in a press.

Ran into another obstacle, apparently WH upgraded the diff. The old one has 5/16 bolts. These would shear and drop the nut into the case. there wasnt enough room for the nut to pass around the gears so it would jam between one gear and the case. Something would have to give and usually it was the case. This is where the D series got its week rearend reputation. The new diff uses 3/8 bolts. So I have an old style bull gear (5/16) and an old style side plate (5/16) and one replacement side plate (3/8). So I am at a stand still untill i can get an updated bull gear and side plate.

Oh i did finally get the hub off. I wouldnt dare let Hunny Bunny video it. After the second hour I was delirious and talking to the hub. HB would have been jealous. I was trying to sweet talk it off. It worked!
